Store Bought Vs. Professional Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening in St Paul MN, Highgrove Dental Care

If you are considering whitening for your teeth, you are probably looking at all of your possible options and determining which one will be right for you. For teeth whitening in St. Paul, we recommend that you come in and speak with Dr. O’Neill about your type of staining and how best to achieve a bright, white smile.

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening 

Store bought teeth whitening products are some of the most affordable around. They work well for some people who have light stains, but ultimately do not achieve the dramatic results that are possible with professional teeth whitening. You may notice that you have inconsistent results, side effects, or that you do not notice a big change in the appearance of your smile. Whitening toothpastes often contain abrasives that increase sensitivities in some people.

Professional teeth whitening allows Dr. O’Neill to customize your whitening treatment to meet your unique needs. If you use tobacco, drink coffee, drink red wine or have difficult stains from tetracycline or fluorosis, he will discuss all of your options. For some stains, covering your tooth with an esthetic veneer may be best. 

We will create custom whitening trays designed to hold your whitening gel on the surface of your teeth during each whitening session. You only need a small dot of whitening gel per tooth to achieve the best results. Using too much product may cause gum irritation.

We will take a before-and-after color test to monitor your results. Dr. O’Neill will be available if you have any questions regarding your professional teeth whitening treatment. If you experience sensitivity due to whitening, we can help! Now that is a service that you will not get from a store-bought whitening kit.
